Daisy Fleabane




Daisy Fleabane from Alley Valley, Scott County, Virginia

For the first time, in all of these years that I have been taking photographs and transferring them to the computer, I lost about 90 photos that were taken over the last two weeks.  I am heart-sick.  I know, it's just photos, BUT.................

They Love It

The pups love the Frosty Paws.  :D  I used 16 ounces (2 cups) of plain yogurt rather than four but left the honey, peanut butter and banana the same.  They tried it before it went into the freezer and loved it.  Will let you know if they like it frozen.  They both like ice cubes so I bet they will.  :)

We Are Not Human Beings... We are Spiritual Beings Having a Human Experience


Rules For Being Human

1. You Will Receive A Body
You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period this time around.

2. You Will Learn Lessons
You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called Life. Each day in this school, you will have the opportunity to learn lessons - you may like the lesson or think them irrelevant and stupid.

3. There Are No Mistakes, Only Lessons
There is a process of trial and error; experimentation. The 'failed' experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately 'works'.

4. A Lesson Is Repeated Until It Is Learned
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.

5. Learning Lessons Does Not End.
There is no part of Life that does not contain its lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

6. 'There' Is No Better Than 'here'.
When your 'there' has become a 'here', you will simply obtain another 'there' that will again look better than 'here'.

7. Others Are Merely Mirrors Of You.
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself.

8. What You Make Of Your Life Is Up To You.
You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

9. Your Answers Lie Inside You.
The answers to Life's questions lie inside you. All you need do is look, listen and trust.

10. You Will Forget All This.

11. You Can Remember It Whenever You Want

Happy April and Easter Recap

Coloring of the Eggs for the Easter Bunny to leave here at my house :p

Spring runner that I made one year---thought I had gotten my bowl of pretty Easter eggs in the picture but I guess not :/

The traditional Graham Easter dessert---'from scratch' banana pudding

This is one of the very first quiltlets that I ever made :)
We had a lovely low-keyed Easter weekend.  Our friend Flannie came for Easter ham and the trimmings with us yesterday.  Her husband is in Arizona right now, so she shared Easter Sunday with us.  The weather was totally fickle.  Really grey and cold.  Went for a walk after feasting, and the rain poured down.  :/  What happened to "in like a lion, out like a lamb'?  Didn't work that way here---in like a lion and out like a lion.  Hope everyone had a lovely Easter and that your April is starting out like Spring.  It's not here---fire in the woodstove as I write.
